Tree Creepers, ny brown birds with curved bills, readily spiral up tree trunks. Older Monterey Pines grow thick plates which begin to break away, allowing these birds to nest behind them.


Which species of tree do you think does most for Milford? Our vote goes to the Monterey Pine. During the recent Open Gardens event, visitors to a member’s garden not only enjoyed three tall, old trees, but also several of their seedling youngsters.


You can idenfy a Monterey by its huge, asymmetrical cones. Close up you’ll see that, unusually, its 4½" needles are held in clusters of three.


MILFORD PARISH CHURCHYARD


All Saints’ Church is surrounded by an extensive churchyard, abounding with local history, with connecons to Royalty, Nelson and his naval bales, military history and es with the most senior of legal figures of the past. People involved with major events, such as the sinking of the Titanic and the collision of the Olympic, the development of the modern Chinese Society and the East India Company are represented along with some darker events.

Monterey Pines bed themselves in deeply. Aer the big storms of previous decades, they held their ground far beer than many other species. Also their living crowns are not prone to dropping.


around the graveyard are arranged. For anyone researching, the graves are covered by a search and locate computer database, operated by the church office and an alphabecal list is available for viewing, with graves dang back to 1653. Inside the church are many more memorials to local notable figures, which include Knights, Queen Victoria’s physician and the influenal Symonds family, members of the salterns’ industry families and Nelsons band of brothers, post captains from the bale of the Nile and even connecons to the


Their homeland is the west coast of America, but they grow much faster here than in their nave habitat. Their neighbours, the Monterey cypresses, also thrive here and veteran trees have lovely trunks, but the crowns are dense and do not allow sunlight through.


No trees are perfect, but most of us love to have them around. Happily, the district and parish councils are friends to Monterey Pines and have put protecon orders on many local trees. The pines are a special part of our parish, so let’s all look aer them and admire this exceponal tree species, which is synonymous with Milford‐on‐Sea.


Huguenots and Dukes of Burgundy. The churchyard is sll in use ‐ each year there are around 30 burials and the internment of cremaon remains are carried out. Many people are unaware that the maintenance of the churchyard is carried out by a team of volunteers from the parish. The work involves mainly grass cung; the church provides the mowing machines and fuel. New volunteers are always welcome.
